TEANECK, N.J. – The Teaneck Township Council officially amended the township's Zoning Board Of Adjustment at its Sept. 12 meeting to allow for four alternates instead of two, reported NorthJersey.com.
Alternates serve for two years, and are intended to be present at meetings when regular members are absent.
Despite the official change, the practice had been informally in effect for some time, NorthJersey.com reported.
The state statute had been changed in 2004 to allow local boards of adjustment to increase alternates, but Teaneck hadn't yet updated their township code.
